As someone who has dealt with breakouts from their early teens to now early thirties, it's safe to say I have become a custom to dealing with spots on a regular basis. My skin has definitely changed over the years, it has gone from being on the oilier side to the combination side to now borderline normal to dehydrated side. I am a big believer in always taking a good look at your skin and seeing what is going on with it at any given time, my skin can change from temperature changes, stress, diet, and so on. Whilst I try to keep a consistent skincare routine to the best of my ability, I still like incorporating products to trial for this website, whilst always being sure to be using the right products for my skin type.

For the past seventeen years or so I don't think there has ever been a time where I have been completely blemish-free, this is why I am constantly looking for products and ingredients to incorporate into my skincare routine to help target this issue. When I turned thirty towards the end of last year I noticed a huge change in my skin, it was a tad drier than normal but the biggest change I noticed was that I was getting blemish marks left behind my current and previous breakouts. This of course was something that really has bothered me and something that I am still dealing with almost a year later, I am slowly but surely getting on top of it by making sure to include products targeted at breakout-prone skin and ingredients that also target pigmentation.

I have recently started to incorporate two products from Dr. Natasha Cook's range which I have previously tried in the past and have always loved the results I have gotten from them.

I have been using the Concentrated Micropeel which contains a blend of 25% Alpha & Beta Hydroxy Acids, as someone who is a huge fan of exfoliation as I know that it has made the biggest difference to my skin over the years, this product really does work wonders. I use it once or twice a week and it does a great job at keeping my breakouts at bay and the overall texture and tone of my skin even. I only ever use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my skin feels the smoothest it has ever felt, it contains a blend of Lactic, Glycolic, Mandelic, Tartaric and Salicylic Acids which all work together to treat everything from breakouts to pigmentation. I use these ingredients regularly throughout my routine and I always know that they work well for me.

The product itself comes individually wrapped which I personally love as overall it makes it easy to use and I know I am getting the perfect dose of product each time I use it, at night I would typically cleanse or double cleanse and then sweep the product over my entire face being careful to not get it too close to my under eye area. I let it dry for a few minutes and then ill use a face mist and follow up with a hydrating serum and moisturizer, even though I only use this product once or twice a week I can still feel the results of it in the following days.

As I have had issues with spots for such a long time now I truly know the importance of using targeted treatments, whenever I have a spot pop up or I have one that's being really persistent and won't go away I instantly reach for the Concentrated Spot Destroyer. The product itself comes in a rollerball applicator which can be easily applied directly to your breakouts, it contains a blend of Lactic, Glycolic, Mandelic, Tartaric and Salicylic Acids which as I mentioned above work well for my skin and are well known exfoliating ingredients that help to fight breakouts. I use this product as a targeted treatment wherever I need it and it does an amazing job at calming down my breakouts at keeping them at bay, whilst I use other products as a part of my routine to fight my spots I also like having this on hand for those times where I need an extra hit of blemish-fighting power.

Editors note: When using any sort of exfoliating product it's also very important to be wearing sunscreen on a daily basis, no matter rain hail, or shine, or whether you are inside our outdoors to protect your skin on a daily basis.
